Jones will be on the 16th season of the ABC dancing competition, which announced his casting. The rest of the cast will be unveiled Tuesday on GMA.

The fall season of Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars came down to tonight, with the Olympic gymnast and soap opera star seeking their second Mirror Ball.
Did they add to their trophy case? Or did The Bachelor winner enter the winner’s circle for the first time after entering part two of the finale as a slight favorite?
Based on Monday’s Dancing With the Stars scores, Melissa held a narrow edge, but all have been so consistently solid, America couldn’t really get it wrong.
Or could we? After one final performance and tens ofMore >
The tension ran high on this evening’s Dancing With the Stars results show.
Based on the scores from the semifinal round, any of the five remaining All-Stars could make a strong case for advancing … but were also at risk for going home.
It’s DWTS, after all. You’re always in jeopardy until you learn you’re not.
So which two were cut, and which three advanced? The two ousted dancers on Tuesday’s Dancing With the Stars results show are pictured above. They are …
Apolo Ohno and Emmitt Smith! It’s an all-female final!

It was double elimination time again on the Dancing With the Stars results show tonight.
Based on the scores from the past two weeks, it looked pretty good for Melissa Rycroft, and looked grim for Kirstie Alley. But as you know … you never really know.
With seven popular DWTS: All-Stars remaining, and the scores relatively tight across the board, all bets were off. So which two were cut, and which five advanced?
The two ousted dancers on Tuesday’s DWTS results show are pictured above. They are …

We’re still getting over the shock, and so is Sabrina Bryan.Sabrina Bryan and Louis van Amstel: Perfect 30!
“It sucks to go home, and nobody’s going to say it doesn’t,” Bryan told People backstage last night.
“Obviously this is a stinger, but you move on from things like this. Dancing with the Stars is awesome. And yes, would I want that damn sparkly mirror ball? Of course. Why did I sign up? Obviously I want it. But at the sameMore >
Think Pamela Anderson is second-guessing last night’s Dancing With the Stars results?
Soccer star Hope Solo, never one to mince words, claims DWTS is rigged, citing occurrences during her stint on the show that “prove” producers, not voters, call the shots.
The 31-year-old, who partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy en route to a fourth-place finish, says they received a “secret memo” that revealed they would be ousted several weeks earlier.
Hope writes in her recently-released memoir:
“Maks later told me he argued with the judges because he’d been told we were going to beMore >
After what appeared to be a relatively fluid and graceful foxtrot last night on the Dancing With the Stars season premiere, Kirstie Alley received surprisingly tough scores from the judges.
Fortunately, she found something positive to focus on: Tom Bergeron’s face.Kirstie Alley – Dancing With the Stars Week 1
In what has to be the longest kiss in the history of Dancing With the Stars (which is saying something), Alley laid one on the host, who won a Primetime Emmy award the previous evening.

Bristol Palin will make her return to Dancing with the Stars this fall, as the reality TV star has been included on that show’s first-ever All-Star cast.
What drew her back to the ballroom? Not attention or money or any request made by ABC, Palin told reporters today at the Television Critics Association press tour. It was all The Big Guy Upstairs.
“God provides opportunities like this for me,” Bristol said. “It’s a positive, active show. It’s going to be awesome.”
But what if – that same God, please forbid! – Palin gets aligned with a gay partner. Considering her view on marriage, won’tMore >

Dancing with the Stars pro turned singer-actress Julianne Hough reveals, in the new issue of Interview magazine, her amazing good looks. And some fun facts about Rock of Ages, including her giving Tom Cruise a lap dance.
In a scene that was cut, tragically.
During the interview, Hough explained that Ryan Seacrest, 37, calls the role “a little sexy,” which prompted the details on the lap dance in question.
“There was one scene we did that ended up not making it into the film, but it was a really great number – ’Rock You Like a Hurricane,” Hough said.
“It was in the strip club, and I gaveMore >

The surprisingly entertaining and evenly-matched 14th season of Dancing With the Stars continued Monday with the top 10 performing Rock Week routines.
The first elimination of the season, Martina Navratilova, we could see coming. Last week, which saw the end of Jack Wagner’s run, was a different story.
A season that many criticized for lacking star power has made up for it with high quality dancing and engaging characters that all leave us wanting more.
Sadly, someone must leave each week, though there is a new twist …

The first elimination on Dancing With the Stars is the dubious honor no one wants, but here in Season 14, the second ouster was even sadder.
That’s because Martina Navratilova double faulted her way home over the opening routines, leaving little doubt she should be sent packing.
This week, however, five couples not only tied for the lowest score, but that score was 24! Someone was going home after all 8s! Or better!
“No one deserves to go home tonight,” proclaimed Dancing With the Stars judge Len Goodman as Tuesday’s elimination show got underway.
But alas, someone did …

Judge Len Goodman delivered a shocker on Dancing with the Stars Monday, apologizing for underscoring NFL star and Week One favorite Donald Driver.
Goodman explained that after watching the episode, he realized he was wrong to give Driver and Peta Murgatroyd a 7 for their crowd-pleasing Cha Cha.
His score of 21 left him near the bottom of the scoreboard, and “I apologize,” Goodman said. “I under-marked you. I watched it back. You did a great job.”
Donald Driver said the mea culpa felt good: “I think we both thought it was a low score, but we made history, so if we continue to make history,More >
Sherri Shepherd took to The View today to address rumors that she’s been rehearsing for the show since January and thus has an unfair advantage.
The Season 14 hopeful denied ever working with Val Chmerkovskiy (her pro partner on the program) and/or Maksim Chmerkovskiy at their dance studio.
“We have never, I say never, we’ve never danced together,” Sherri said of the rumor. “I’ve never danced with Maks, I’ve never danced with Val.”
However, she did attend a dance class at their venue.
She did clarify that she loves dancing and had taken classes, however, “This started long before IMore >
